Loved the Gem! We were looking for a relaxing cruise after our daughter's wedding....this was the perfect fit. Embarkation was easy and we were aboard quickly. The entire staff was friendly and accommodating, always had excellent service. We enjoyed our aft balcony and our cabin steward, Clark who was always happy and interactive......he met all of our needs. We loved the Great Outdoors and the bartenders there. Can't beat the Unlimited Beverage Package. The Behind the Scenes Tour was a ton of fun and well worth the price. Also took advantage of a special Spa treatment on a port day, it was fabulous! Ate at 3 specialty restaurants...La Cucina, Cagney's and Le Bistro - enjoyed all three. Went parasailing and snorkeling at Great Stirrup Cay but stayed on the ship at Port Canaveral and Nassau (except for a brief outing to the marketplace). Disembarkation was a breeze. We've sailed on the Breakaway to Bermuda and the Sun to Alaska previously and enjoyed the Gem just as much! Heading on the Epic next year for a Mediterranean adventure.....I'm certain we won't be disappointed. Extremely happy with NCL.

Perfect Cruise!
